Why Linux needs to be more like Windows -or- Impediments to enterprise Linux

Our speaker is Steve Friedl, a software consultant in Orange County who's been using UNIX since the early '80s, using Windows since the late '80s, and has
more than 20 years of cross-platform consulting and commercial software
development experience. He has taught advanced C/UNIX at Bell Labs, and is the only Microsoft MVP with "unix" in his domain name (unixwiz.net).

He'll be making the case that Linux has some stumbling blocks that make
enterprise management and deployment much more difficult than they need to be, and what road there might be to make some progress on these fronts.
